Use dried tea leaves as a deodoriser. Scatter them over the carpet, leave for ten minutes then vacuum up. Place in the fridge to absorb odours (like baking soda).
If you only need a tool or piece of equipment infrequently then instead of buying one, save resources by asking a friend or neighbour if you can borrow one. Or check online for a lending club, such as Streetbank.
Look at the types of products you use and switch from disposable to reusable, such as food and drink containers, razors and nappies.
Instead of buying paper napkins for each celebration buy cloth napkins that you can use again, or make your own.
If you're looking for a hotel go to TripAdvisor and select 'GreenLeaders' from the 'More' menu option above the search box.
Save and re-use the little sundries that come along with packaging, such as rubber bands, twist ties and boxes.
Switch to LED lights. They cost less to run and last longer than any other bulb.
Choose rechargeable batteries and a battery charger to cut down on disposables. Eventually recyclable batteries reach the end of their life too but they can be recycled – local recycling policies vary so check with your recycling facility.
If possible replace disposable products with reusable ones (eg. food storage, coffee filters, straws, etc.).
